Amazing Lace Challenge – Extreme Knitting

Amazing Lace – Challenge #2:

Your challenge: one exhilarating photograph that shows you engaged in death-, logic-, or sanity-defying lace knitting.

My version of Extreme Knitting? It’s not for the faint of heart; the timid; the weak-kneed.

Because, you see, I knit with cats.

Enough said.

Don’t forget to try to win a pair of pink handknit socks by sponsoring either me or my little sister for the Avon Breast Cancer walk. We’ve got less than a month to go, and we’ve still got about $1,400 to go!

    Yikes! You’re a brave woman! Good luck with your shawl and with keeping it away from your “assistants”.

    I’m so scared for you! Did you see what Chaos did to Cabernet?

  3. Susan says:

    You must knit with catnip-scented yarn. 🙂

    LOL! Wow! You have 4 cats there to my two! Yesterday I posted a picture of my cats checking out my still very small Pacific Northwest Shawl. What yarn are you using?

  5. Jenipurr says:

    The yarn is Jaggerspun, silk and merino blend. And actually I’ve got *six* cats – but two of them are scaredycats, so we couldn’t convince either of them to take part in the photo shoot (grin).

  6. Jen says:

    6 cats! OMG! You must be a very busy girl! And, I must say, very brave. My one kitty is always into whatever yarn I have just lying around, so don’t know what I’d do with 6 cats around! You are one brave and x-treme girl! Great photo!

  7. Theresa says:

    Maybe you could teach the cats to knit?

  8. knitnana says:

    Wow…6!?! I thought my 3 were a challenge. Yet only one really likes to “help” with the knitting and that’s The Meezer! Good luck with your Amazing Lace partner…

    What a great picture. Thanks for sharing, I think you are to much. I mean knitting with cats all over you and a smile to go with it. I try to knit with my three boys right next to me and I get a littled wiered out so I put it down.
